Be Mindful of This!

Keeping God #1 in Your Business (PR_Vol_181) 

Be Mindful Of Christ's Obedience At The Cross.

2 Corinthians 10:5
"casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ", 

Have you ever felt condemned because of the bad thoughts you have had? You could be in the middle of a prayer meeting when suddenly a dirty thought enters your mind. Actually, it is the devil that puts such thoughts in your mind. Then, he steps back, looks at you and knocks you on your head, saying, “How can you call yourself a Christian and still think such thoughts?”

I used to be in bondage over any bad thoughts I had because I felt that I had to confess every one of them and seek God’s forgiveness. But that is not what God’s Word exhorts us to do. You see, God wants us to bring “every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ”. Now, whose obedience are we to focus on? Christ’s obedience and not our own obedience!

But what is “the obedience of Christ”? It is His obedience at the cross, where “by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous”. (Romans 5:19) Jesus shed His blood for us at the cross. This means that when our thoughts condemn us, we are to focus our thoughts on Jesus’ obedience at the cross.

My friend, the devil can only make inroads into your mind when he gets you to focus on your obedience instead of Christ’s obedience. His strategy is to point you to your obedience or the lack of it to determine your standing before God. But just as our position as sinners is not based on what we do, but what the first Adam did, in the same way, we are forever righteous today not because of what we do, but because of what Christ, the last Adam, did on the cross. 

Beloved, I know that some religious preachers and teachers of the law will lead you to believe that you can sin-away your righteousness and lose your salvation. This may be so under the Law but not under the true and only gospel that Apostle Paul knew and preached about; the gospel of Christ which he called the gospel of grace. (John1:14, 16-17) Jesus is grace personified and anywhere you see the name of Jesus you can substitute grace. “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men” (Titus 2:11) KJV , (Galatians 1:6-,9), (Ephesians 2:8-9), (Acts 20:32).

The bible says, “For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6:14) Furthermore, here is what Jesus has to say about your eternal salvation and justification. (John 10:28-29) NIV. “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29) My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand”. That word “No One” includes YOUClick Here to see  my previous Press Release on this liberating truth.

So the next time your thoughts seem to condemn you, say, “I am righteous whether I have good or bad thoughts. My righteousness has nothing to do with my obedience. Jesus’ obedience at the cross made me righteous.” Then, go ahead and pray, knowing that you have access to God and His favor, and that He hears the prayer of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29)
